Redfall Revealed, Coming Exclusively to Xbox Series X|S

Anne Lewis writes: Announced during the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase, Redfall is a new co-op, open-world first-person shooter from Arkane Austin, the award-winning team behind Prey and Dishonored. Play it solo or in co-op with up to four players to face off against a legion of vampires that have overtaken the once-quaint island town of Redfall. In signature Arkane style, you will choose your path across the island and through the vampire masses as you discover what caused this plague of bloodsuckers, then put an end to the threat. Pick from a roster of heroes with unique skills and gear them up with customizable weaponry found throughout the island. Do whatever it takes to build the perfect team of vampire slayers.

Redfall is coming exclusively to Xbox X|S and PC in Summer 2022 and will be available with Game Pass on day one.

This is when I need to own my XSX by now.

CaptainHenry916105d ago (Edited 105d ago )

It did look good but it was just a CGI trailer. Looks like it'll be like left 4 dead and back 4 blood. I was hoping for Hellblade 2

Christopher105d ago

It's Arkane, though, for me. This idea combined with what they've done with their past games that I absolutely love? This is unlikely to be something I won't enjoy greatly.

UltraNova105d ago (Edited 105d ago )

We saw nothing that has not been done before and it was CGi, however it's Arkane we are talking about here so it's bound to be polished and with good gameplay.

DOMination-105d ago

It's not Arkane Lyon though, it's some satellite studio who have only worked on support and DLC. Different devs, different culture, different country on the other side of the world.

Suggesting it will be so great its worth buying an Xbox for when all we have is a CGI trailer and that its *probably* a hero-based 4vs1 shooter from a bunch of nobodies seems a bit over the top.

"It's not Arkane Lyon though, it's some satellite studio who have only worked on support and DLC. Different devs, different culture, different country on the other side of the world."

Are you serious?

ABizzel1105d ago

This didn't really do anything for me because it was CG, but it seems like Left 4 Dead / Back for Blood, which I love, and I like vampires, so it should be something to watch out for later. Unfortunately, there seems to be A LOT of games that are aiming for that same experience Warhammer, WWZ, etc...

darthv72104d ago

CGI is what these platforms look like now. It is expected.

SullysCigar104d ago

Title: "Coming Exclusively to Xbox Series X|S"

Article: "coming to Xbox and PC summer 2022"

Why lie in the title? I clicked because it seemed too good to be true. It was. When did N4G give up on moderating for the sake of correct information?

ConsoleAgnostic104d ago

It is an open world game...so not like back for blood.

For those disagreeing, it's okay, no one is forcing you to buy an XSX.

Sonic-and-Crash105d ago (Edited 105d ago )

how many similar FPS shooters are /or will be on XSX really?....are nt you stuffed ? ....really at the end i was bored to see so much FPS/music montage that almost looked the same as COD even Halo became Cod ..

i know XSX will catter to a big gamer niche but in no way with such library go to compete with Sony/Ninty

CaptainHenry916105d ago (Edited 105d ago )

I think they're disagreeing because it was all CGI. The game definitely has potential and sure it will be a good game and Arkane is a good developer.

Christopher105d ago (Edited 105d ago )

***how many similar FPS shooters are /or will be on XSX really?....are nt you stuffed ? ***

I don't play your annual release CoD, Halos, Gears, BF, etc. shooters. I play Arkane games that have shooter components and a great team behind them with great concepts on engaging gameplay.

So, no, I'm not stuffed. I also don't just accept anything put in front of me. But, Arkane? They have a proven track record and showed something that I really enjoyed and would like to play.

***i know XSX will catter to a big gamer niche but in no way with such library go to compete with Sony/Ninty***

We're all different types of gamers with different tastes. Why is it so wrong to have a company support what many gamers like that they don't get on the others?

Sonic-and-Crash105d ago (Edited 105d ago )

@Christofer "We're all different types of gamers with different tastes. Why is it so wrong to have a company support what many gamers like that they don't get on the others?"

It is not at all wrong ...its perfectly fine ..if you want always the second place though ....with no variety in genres , cant aim for 1st place or even convince me subscribe to your service ..

343_Guilty_Spark105d ago

@Sonic-and-Crash

But don't you shoot a lot in Ratchet? I'm confused? Is shooting bad now? Most modern games feature shooter, beating people up, or weapon play.

Sonic-and-Crash105d ago (Edited 105d ago )

@343 yes i wont disagree...shooting isnot bad and is a crucial mechanic for almost any game.....but shooter from shooter has difference.....i need a whole text to explain myself ...there are genres and genres and i think you get my point...... in todays show there was similarity in a bad way in every shooter they shown

chiefJohn117105d ago (Edited 105d ago )

@Sonic go play your movie games and leave him alone.
Fable, starfield, Avowed, Hellblade, outerworlds, forza, etc are all non shooters. Halo plays nothing like COD. Gears plays nothing like Halo, Gears will play nothing like this. So idk where you get similar from And where's Sonys and Ninty shooters? Aren't you stuffed of kiddy games and open world rpg movie games?
Lol 343 shutyou up

JustTheFax105d ago

haha it seems more like they don't want YOU to get one

You really believed that word "exclusive"? Damn I pity you.

Christopher105d ago

This comment makes no sense. It's exclusive to Xbox and PC. I don't game on PC, I game on consoles. What is there to pity other than the possibility that you think your opinion on where one plays is better than another's?

Armyntt105d ago

I pity those who care if the game is exclusive or not. Nerdiest thing in gaming is caring about exclusivity.

King_Noctis104d ago

Are you saying you can play it on the PS5? On the Switch? On Stadia? On Playdate? On Soulja Console?

Wow, sign me up.

RosweeSon105d ago

Highlight of the show for sure but not for at least another year minimum, that’s without any delays which is quite plausible but yeah this and forza horizon 5 which I wouldn’t rush out and get console for, like at least 3-5 epic exclusives so that’s about 2 for me. Sure something else will catch my interest, perfect dark if they showed it off, or Indy. Hey ho chrimbo 2022 maybe for me. Series X 2.0 🤣

iplay1up2105d ago

Halo infinite, Flight Simulator, Forza Horizon 5, The Ascent, Scorn, The Elder Scrolls Online and more are all this year and Game Pass day 1.

Godmars290105d ago (Edited 105d ago )

For another hero team shooter?

Can't say the suggested theme, having to fight through vampires rampaging through small towns towards the end of the world as known, sounds promising. But it needs to be something other than a shooter. Especially a team shooter.

Christopher105d ago

I don't normally play the other ones. I wait for ones that are from developers I like and have concepts I enjoy. This looks like that for now.

SirBruce105d ago

Or a PC... or a TV with Xbox Game Pass App... or a tablet... or a smartphone... or a Mac... or anything but a PlayStation (for the moment).

Christopher105d ago

The cheapest of those to play the game in native 4k on my existing 75" TV w/o streaming is...?

DJStotty104d ago

I thought it was a good solid showing compared to their previous E3's.

Halo showing was a lot better.
Forza Horizon 5 looks excellent.
Starfield to kick off the show
Redfall definately grabbed my interest at the end, CGI or not.
I got giddy when i seen AOE, only to be devastated with still no console date
MSFS in July to start the steady stream of games
Sea of Thieves/Disney collaboration looks to add even more fun to an already fun game.

Sunny12345104d ago

This was the only thing good about xbox showcase. Rest were meh. Honestly what's with shooters everywhere. Give me a good medieval rpg.

Looks cool, nice to see vampires over Zombies or something

However I felt like a lot of stuff at Microsofts conference was co-op this and co-op that, now Arkane who's always stuck mostly to single player focused experiences. This would have been a great concept as a story focused single player game, now it looks like it could be something like Left 4 Dead / Back 4 Blood, those types of games.

Christopher105d ago

They literally said play solo or with others. It's like Borderlands. I have no issues with adding more options for more people.

-Foxtrot105d ago (Edited 105d ago )

Yeah but I mean...you can play L4D solo with AI squad mates

That sentence, at the minute, could mean anything with lack of info

It can go with the Borderlands way or the L4D way, which is why at the minute of writing this I'm say it "LOOKS" like it could go that way. I'm only saying that based on Microsofts conference being co-op heavy

RaidenBlack105d ago

This was leaked about a month ago.
Wonder how's the gameplay gonna be ....

Christopher105d ago

"In Redfall, you’ll choose from a lineup of unconventional heroes, each with their own unique abilities and specialized weaponry, and face off against the bloodsucking legions threatening the island. You can go it alone, building your chosen character around solo play, or you can select the perfect character to round out a roster of heroes in up to four-player co-op."

None of that says "AI companions" but it reads just like Borderlands gameplay and concept.

I'm not going to be skeptical here for the sake of being skeptical. I like what I saw, they tell me things I like. Until they say otherwise, I'm going to enjoy the potential of this game.

I kind of wish you had that ability still. You might be happier.

-Foxtrot105d ago (Edited 105d ago )

"None of that says "AI companions" but it reads just like Borderlands gameplay and concept"

Like I said, it might but until we see more, it could go either way. It was a CGI trailer and as we know things change over time.

"I'm not going to be skeptical here for the sake of being skeptical"

Well, that's great, but I didn't say you shouldn't be....hell, you replied to me, I didn't reply to you and tell you how you were "wrong" to not be sceptical, did I?

"I kind of wish you had that ability still. You might be happier"

Why make a sly dig and go in with a slight personal attack? There's no need for it, you're an admin/mod, come on, there wasn't any need, you said what you had to say and I was never disagreeing with you as I didn't reply to you initially to downplay your opinion.

Christopher105d ago

***Why make a sly dig and go in with a slight personal attack? ***

It's an observation. Did I say you were unhappy or that you could be happier?

And, it's because you are pretty much just negative. Sometimes I worry if you still enjoy gaming. That's an observation. I can make those. You take it as a dig, but it's a reflection of your presence on this site.

it's most likely on pc too so i'm good

DJStotty104d ago

Seeing as though it is gamepass day 1, and gamepass spans both platforms, add to the fact they said it was coming to PC at the showing.

Yeah, it is on PC lol.

Bladesfist105d ago

It says so in the description, all Xbox first party games come to PC.

Tedakin105d ago

All Xbox games are coming to PC too. That's the way it is from now on.

DJStotty104d ago

And all coming to the gamepass subscription at no extra cost :p

randomvoice105d ago

Looked decent. Would have liked actual gameplay as opposed to CGI. Looks like a mix between L4D+Suicide Squad with Vampires as opposed to Zombies.

Terry_B105d ago

The premise looks fun but without gameplay we know nothing.

NeoGamer232105d ago

It is shipping over a yyear away. Not sure it made much sense showing gameplay right now.
